Brown Paper Packages….Day 2….

Hi, hello!  We’re back again today with more holiday gift bags inspiration.

Next in the series is this cute little bag, perfectly sized to gift a cd or dvd or even just a super nice envelope for a card!  I stenciled this one as well, like I did for yesterday’s bag, (you can check it out here) but I didn’t own any nice sized stencils so I made this one with my Silhouette Cameo.  I cut the “stencil” from basic cardstock because I knew I’d only be using it once and that cardstock would easily hold up for minimal uses.  If I wanted to use it more than just this project, I might cut if from acetate or a stencil plastic sheet.  Then, I ink daubed it and silver heat embossed, before the addition of die cut branches and boughs, and a white glitter leaf.

I stamped a sentiment on a metal rimmed tag, tied on some ribbon and twine and added a miniature clothespin to make it good and secure! (Ha.  The clothespin is purely decorative.  Hugely supported with some strong adhesive on the back of the tag).

Winter Greens Framed Wreath…

Hi, hello!

Remember this summer how I posted a layout…in answer to a challenge Lori gave me to create a layout with more than one photo on it.  Well, this project took a little longer to come up with but was also born out of a challenge Lori issued me.  To make a paper craft home decor project.  Dude.  This was hard for me!  But I finally came up with this framed wreath made of glitter paper die cuts from the Sizzix/Tim Holtz Winter Greens dies.

I die cut a bunch of boughs and branches from white and silver glitter paper…
